Backed by 16 acres of palm-studded grounds and a sweeping azure pool, Accra’s newest luxury bolthole is certainly living up to its hype. Waiters on roller blades glide across the gleaming patio, supplying fresh snacks and icy drinks to holidaymakers stretched out on loungers around the pool; the onsite luxury shopping centre is filled with high-end goods, from high-end fashions at Stellar Deluxe to Afrocentric homeware at Joe’s Perspective; Sankofa restaurant pleases with an array of international flavours, and the one2one cocktail lounge expertly whips up any favoured tipple. There’s a great little deli by the shopping galleries, and the restaurant is becoming very popular. It’s also worth saying that the breakfast is the best in the city right now.
